you can remove the fuel hose on the end of the fuel filter, then install a fuel hose that is long enough to go to a bucket.


remove the rear seat, then you will see the fuel pump cover, remove the cover, and disconnect the two wire harness connector to the pump. then supply power and ground to the connector. this will force the pump to run, and you can keep it running till it is out or your bucket is full.
